LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 6, 2017) – The Boys and Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana have hired Jerquil (JC) Campbell as vice president of development and communications.
As a former Club Kid, JC is excited to make a contribution to the organization that changed his life and the lives of his siblings. His priorities as VP of development and communications are to bring awareness to the organization, strengthen the brand and increase fundraising goals through best practice strategies.
As a product of the Boys and Girls Club, JC knows firsthand the value of creating a safe space and productive environment for young men and women.
“Because I know how important this organization was to my success and to the community, I believe that my experience, coupled with my expertise provides a unique opportunity to ‘tell the story’ of the impact of this organization in the community,” JC said.
JC was most recently the associate vice president of alumni relations and development at Kentucky State University, and was previously the executive director of fundraising and community outreach for St. Benedict CDC. With expertise in communications, marketing, and development, JC has been working in fundraising and communications for nearly a decade.
As a graduate of DuPont Manual High School and member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, he has received dual degrees as a Regent’s Scholar from Georgetown College/Oxford University and earned a Master’s of Education with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration and Development from the University of Louisville (UofL). JC is currently working on his Doctorate at UofL in Pan African Studies and Higher Education.
